Barrios Mangoré, Augustín - Julia Florida - D08

Post by lagartija » Sat Jan 28, 2017 10:33 pm

It has been a few years since I have posted any recordings to the forum. Mostly because as my ears have improved, I can only hear the inadequacies in my playing and that embarrasses me. :oops:
However, since it is "New Guitar Day" and I know I will be asked for a sound sample, I am posting this recording of Julia Florida--warts and all-- as my new guitar's sound sample. I made a few recordings this afternoon and this is the one with the fewest errors. :chaud: The mistakes occur in different places in each of the recordings I made.

Ah well, I should know better than to expect a "perfect" recording. :-D
I used a Zoom H4N with no processing. Any clicks or taps you hear in the background come from the radiator in the room when the heat is on! (hot water baseboard heat)
The strings are just D'Addario EJ46.

I really love the piece....I am working hard on playing it better. I hope you enjoy it ...this is what nearly eight years of CG study sounds like. I didn't know how to read music when I started at age 54, so for all of you late starters, just remember you are never too old!

It really is a beautiful piece and you played it very well. Just a few little hesitancies to work on.

I liked your tone throughout and I was too focussed on the music to hear any clicks or taps.

Thanks Lagartija (if that is your name) for this wonderful recording. Julia Florida is an almost impossibly beautiful piece and you play it clearly and with expression. Let's hear more of your new guitar in the days ahead!

Thank you for listening, David, Spanishguitarmusic and Jeffrey.
:merci:
Lagartija is how I am known online, Jeffrey. ;-) Julia Florida is one of the few pieces that I am currently playing that is in the Public Domain. I play Villa-Lobos pieces (Choros, Prelude 1, 3 and 4), Cancion y Danza by Ruiz-Pipo, Lauro's waltz #3, Cardoso's Milonga.....none of these can be posted on Delcamp! The others pieces I am working on in the Public Domain are not up to performance level yet.

Wow, it sounds nice. Thanks for sharing. I can't wait until next year as then maybe I can get a luthier built instrument. Nice job on the rosette.
